We are open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9 to noon. Shelf stockers are needed from 10:30am to 1pm to restock depleted shelves and organize the store room. This opportunity is perfect for people who like organizing and categorizing. You need to be able to bend down and lift a minimum of 10lbs. There is a small amount of interaction with clients. We are a relaxed environment where volunteers enjoy one another's company. Help is especially needed in the last two weeks of each month, when we get the most clients because they have run out of food stamps.
About South Wedge Food Program
68 Ashland st, Rochester, NY 14620, US
The South Wedge Food Program exists to offer free groceries to people in need in Rochester, NY. We provide food with respect and dignity and help clients find other sources of help in and around the Rochester area.
Since the 1970's the Historic Calvary St Andrews building has hosted a feeding program for those in need. Currently, we feed between 300 and 400 families each month; providing them with healthy food choices. We are set up just like a grocery store to help reduce the stigma of needing to visit a food pantry. Our volunteers are friendly, helpful, and enjoy each other's company. We also have a sewing program that makes reusable shopping bags for our clients.
